The new law ... will expire in six months unless Congress renews it. The administration wanted the changes to be permanent.

Many congressional Democrats wanted tighter restrictions on government surveillance, but yielded in the face of Bush's veto threats and the impending August recess.

``This bill would grant the attorney general the ability to wiretap anybody, any place, any time without court review, without any checks and balances,'' said Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., during the debate preceding the vote. ``I think this unwarranted, unprecedented measure would simply eviscerate the 4th Amendment,'' which prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures.

bush's secret spying on american's

Bush’s aides argued that their access to this electronic data might help detect terrorists, but the data could prove even more useful in building dossiers on anti-war activists or blackmailing political opponents. A targeted individual would have almost no privacy in the face of an all-knowing government.

Despite the administration’s assurance that political abuses wouldn’t happen, the capability would be a huge temptation for political strategists like Karl Rove who have made clear that they view anyone not supporting Bush’s war on terror as a terrorist ally.

so how did louisiana's criminal congressional delegation vote on this garbage you ask? well, besides piyush "bobby" jindal who wasnt even present and is listed as not voting which doesnt matter because his george dubya bush rubber stamping ass would have voted for it anyway, only william jefferson voted against this - so thank you congressman jefferson. which brings us to our senior (and hopefully after the 2008 elections former) senator katrina mary landrieu.

it seems that everyone except louisiana's democrats and democratic party officials knows that this two-bit whore to the bush crime machine is in actuality a republican in everything but name only. in all the unconstitutional, freedom robbing legislation this slut falls right in lockstep with george bush. hey katrina mary you must really love the taste of that bush boot leather eh? you bitch.
you will never see any of the states democratic leadership coming out to repudiate katrina mary's republican tendencies either, because, they are so dumb they alienated the vast majority of the states voters driving them (like the spider and the fly) into the nazi republican party. thanks to the mess of their own making they have no choice in their most likely futile attempt to cling to power by supporting any jackass sporting a (d) at the end of their name. including that equally democratic imbecile charlie melancon.

pat buchanan was spot on when he said that the republican and democratic parties are "two wings of the same bird of prey."
